My name is Anouar Bahlaouane. I'm 37 years old and I am from Safi, Morocco. I suffer with heart disease. 13 years ago, in 2008, I had open heart surgery because I had a hole in my heart. Since then I have not been able to keep up with all hospital examinations and medication, because of severe financial difficulties my family and I are experiencing. My mother is also unwell. She has diabetes, and is now partially blind due to the lack of medical care and medication because of insufficient funds. I am currently unemployed and it has been a huge struggle to track and maintain my health. I recently had Covid 19 but got through it. A little while after I recovered I began feeling more exhausted and weak than usual. I went to see a doctor in Medina and was told I should visit a specialist. I borrowed some money to travel to Marrakesh to be examined by another specialist. Tests were carried out. On the 5th of February 2021. The cardiologist said that I need another open heart surgery. I have been told that the right side of my heart is enlarged, there is blockage in my arteries, which has now caused problems in the valve that needs to pump blood to my kidneys. I have an irregular heartbeat and I need the operation as soon as possible.
It scares me because I know I need the operation fairly soon, but I haven't the means to get the surgery done. Please help me. Without the operation I need, I feel my life will be cut short. This worries me a lot because I need to be around to take care of my mother and my two sisters. Please could you find it in your heart to help, and donate as much you can. I am sincerely grateful in advance, for every single donation I receive, no matter how large, or small. God willing. Thank you all very much for taking the time, and for reading all about my situation.
